Alcatraz, Is J.J Abrams New Hit TV Show The Next Lost

Thursday, 21 July 2011

I ran across this show this morning whilst doing my rounds on the net.  is this the new Lost?  I think it may well be.  The show produced by Abrams, who created TV hits Lost and Fringe and is also responsible for hit movie Super 8 as well as the upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. 

As yet I have not heard of any UK network picking this show up but based on the trailer I have seen and posted below it won't be to long before Sky some calling at the doors of Fox once again.

Alcatraz of course needs no introduction from me, it's the most infamous prison in America and as far as I know, no one ever escaped and if they did then the currents around the island were so strong they would never have made it back to San Fransisco.  Now I know what you are thinking is this just a TV show re hashed from that movie "The Rock" starring Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage?  No it's not.  the premise of this show is a lot classier than that and it seems like man of the moment J.J Abrams has pulled it out the bag once again, take a look at the trailer below and then let me know what you think.

Set in present day San Fransisco Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones "Sons Of Anarchy") is assigned to a grisly homicide case, there are no leads except one fingerprint lifted from the scene.  The fingerprint however, belongs to Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce "The Nine") a former inmate at Alcatraz prison who seemingly died decades before.  Que government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neil "Jurassic Park") who is trying every way he can to scupper Rebecca's investigation into the crime.  Trusting no one she turns to Alcatraz expert Dr Diego "Doc" Soto (Jorge Garcia "Lost"), a little young to be an Alcatraz expert maybe?  but one all the same.  The two begin to piece together a sequence of events and discover that Sylvane is not only alive but he is roaming the streets of San Fransisco and has not aged a day since he was in prison.

The pair eventually team up with Hauser and his technicians in order to stop Sylvane and his vengeful killing spree whilst uncovering a web of government cover ups along the way.  It soon becomes clear that Sylvane won't be the only dangerous former Alcatraz inmate to make a re appearance in San Fransisco.

The trailer for this show looks great and I really think Lost addicts, myself included are going to love it.
